Reasonable Response

You are probably familiar with Romans 12:1 – 2.  There Paul tells us that the response he describes is the reasonable one or the rational one to all of the doctrine that he has described in chapters 1 – 11.  But there are other places that describe a rational response to God.  Psalm 99 is one of those places.  Look at how the Lord is described by the Psalmist, He:
What other places besides Romans 12:1 - 2 describe our reasonable response to God.  Thoughts at DTTB.
  • Reigns
  • Is Great
  • Is Exalted
  • Is Holy x 3
Look at how the Psalmist describes how we should respond to that truth, he says, “Let the people…”
  • Tremble
  • Praise
  • Exalt
  • Worship x 2
We are to approach the throne with fear to worship Him.  That is the rational response to God’s majesty.  How do you think this relates to Romans 12:1 – 2?
